The necessity for a reform of Private Bill procedure is so universally
acknowledged, and the English, Scotch, and Irish press have, within
the last few weeks, so emphatically reiterated the demand frequently
put forward for such reform, that it is unnecessary to occupy
time in again repeating the reasons upon which this demand is
based, in again detailing instances of the extravagant and profitless
expenditure which the present method compels, and in reciting once
more the story of the worry, risk, haste, and oppression of the system
that has so long depleted the capital and retarded and blighted
the energies and efforts of industrial life in Ireland.
It will be a more profitable task to try and arrive at a practical
conclusion. To see what best can now be done to effect a sound
reform, and to endeavour to put forward such suggestions as may
assist, through consideration and discussion of past efforts and recent
proposals, to attain an effective result in the near future.
